That's largely on the backs of the great players who come from around the world to play there, including stars from Italy, Spain and The Netherlands.

Notre Dame avoided any scorn last year when for the first night game ever at Michigan’s Big House, the Irish sported special edition unis that looked great. Adidas managed to change the design, but still look classic. Mission accomplished. [More pictures and a video after the jump]
